Our veterinary assistants are entrusted with the special hands-on care of your pet while they are at our hospital. Your pet’s comfort is their number one priority and includes keeping them comfortable, taking them for bathroom and fresh air walks, and tending to their food and water needs. Our assistants also help the veterinarians and technicians with diagnostic testing and treatments and are a key part of the health care team at our hospital.

She is an invaluable member, especially when holding your pet for a nail trim, blood collection, or for those important diagnostic x-rays.
